Kevin Washburn (Chickasaw) took a temporary leave as dean of the University of Iowa College of Law to head the U.S. Department of Interior review team for Joe Biden’s transition into the White House. Washburn served as Interior’s assistant secretary of Indian Affairs for the Obama Administration. He was also an attorney for the U.S. Justice Department and a federal prosecutor. He is an expert on tribal gaming and the intersection of federal Indian law and criminal law. We’ll talk with him about his passion for teaching and his influence on the new administration’s approach to Indian Country.
